Cygnet Stage Stands


Dependable, slick, hard-wearing and amazing value. It is not often you see all those words in the same sentence, but they all apply to the excellent range of Cygnet Tackle products.

The Sheffield-based company, part of the Trakker stable, has firmly established itself in the carp fishing market, and their edgy, no-nonsense hardware is here to stay.

Viewers of the last free Korda DVD will have seen Tom Dove put his Cygnet Stage Stands through their paces during his piece on Walthamstow Reservoirs when he fished off a platform, and with more fisheries opting for platform-based swims, the use of either Stage Stands or pods is on the increase.

The rigidity and ease of a pod is a big vote-winner, but I like the minimal fuss and space-saving that the Stage Stand provides, and they can also be mounted on a sleeper, which perhaps can give you a better angle to your chosen spot. Cygnet provides both option, but if you are thinking of a Stage Stand, it is well worth checking out.

Cygnet produce 20/20 and standard versions. Mounting them is as easy as screwing the supplied Phillips screw through the hole in the base into your platform or wooden sleeper; the Stand will self-level on tightening. The Stage Stand also features a stainless steelaluminium thumbscrew.

Although the Stage Stand was initially designed to work with the rest of Cygnet’s 20/20 range, it’s fully interchangeable with their 16mm banksticks and storm poles. I like to team up the Stage Stand with a six-inch extendable bankstick at the front and the nine-inch version at the back. RRP on the 20/20 stage stands is £14.99, and the 12mm standard Stands are £13.99 each, and both include a cross head screw for fixing.
